Blooming Gardens

Four years ago, the Common Ground Foundation, led by Academy Award winning artist, actor, and author, Common, partnered with the Gardeneers to bring a garden project to KIPP Bloom College Prep (KBCP). Since the founding of the gardens, the Gardeneers, a non-profit that cultivates customized school garden programs, has been visiting KBCP once a week to teach KIPPsters how to tend to the garden. They also lead demonstrations on healthy eating using vegetables from the garden.
